That’s right, I’ll say it. I like fall fashion better than summer fashion. Fall allows us ladies to show off our individual styles in such a different way. Summer is about making a statement with just a few articles of clothing. Fall is about bringing together all those accessories and layers to craft the perfect look.
As you’re waiting for that crisp weather to set in, here are four fun fall looks to get excited about, and our guide to creating them yourself!
Ladies, bold is beautiful. And this fall, I say go bold with bright, rich solid-colored separates in classic cuts, with a preppy touch. The leopard print loafers add a bit of playfulness (I’ve been lusting over a pair for a while now)—a classic throw-back in style but with a modern, fun print.
Where to wear it: A weekend football tailgate or brunch with the girls.
Get the look! 1. Sunglasses, Karen Walker, $180/ 2. Blazer, dressrail.com, $31/ 3. Cropped Pants, $100, Surface to Air, $100/ 4. Necklace, mark., $36/ 5. Sweater, TopShop, $76/ 6. Watch, Michael Kors, $250/ 7. Loafers, Steve Madden, $120
This look is quintessential fall. Sweater tights, rich neutrals, and lots of comfy layers. The knit circle scarf and oxfords add an element of casualness while still looking polished, and a good camel coat makes your fall wardrobe tailored and sophisticated.
Where to wear it: A stroll around town or a trip to the farmer’s market.
Who says maxi skirts are just for the warmer months? An easy transition from hot summer to crisp fall, I love this blousey combination of floaty fabrics in longer silhouettes and darker colors. Instead of wearing sandals, opt for flat booties to mix things up (especially if it’s cooler outside!). Weigh down your wrists with gold bangles, linked bracelets, and your staple watch, and you’re ready to go!
Where to wear it: A weekend day trip or an afternoon at the museum.
Get the look! 1. Purse, TopShop, $50/ 2. Bracelets, (from top to bottom): Gold Bracelet, Liz Claiborne, $18; Mosaic Bangle, Forever21, $6.80; Pyramid Stretch Bracelet, Forever21, $3.80; Gold Bangle, Alexis Bittar, $55/ 3. Watch, Asos, $60/ 4. Blouse, Vanessa Bruno, $90/ 5. Skirt, tfnc, $37/ 6. Belt, Madewell, $55/ 7. Booties, Steve Madden, $69.95
Texture, texture, texture! This is such a great look, not only because it mixes neutrals with a pop of color (hello, mustard. It’s true, I love you) but because the texture of the vest and the jacket work so beautifully together. This outfit can take you from day to evening: just throw a pair of heels in your purse and some extra accessories. Convenient when you’re going straight from work to a date with your beau.
Where to wear it: To the office, with a pair of flats or wedges and tights, or out to dinner, with heels and a statement necklace.
Get the look! 1. Watch, Asos, $52/ 2. Purse, Asos, $69/ 3. Faux Fur Vest, Jack by BB Dakota, $65/ 4. Skirt, Modcloth, $65/ 5. Booties, Chinese Laundry, $79/ 6. Belt, Wetseal, $11/ 7. Tweed Jacket, TopShop, $84/ 8. Earrings, House of Harlow 1960, $66
Whether you take these looks as a whole or test-drive some smaller elements first, have fun with what you’re wearing this fall. Take some risks! Changing up your look is the best way to evolve your personal style.
